We have been collecting hyperspectral data in support of reef mapping for
the past 3 years with NOAA, the Park Service and the Navy.  We are using the
AISA airborne hyperspectral instrument that includes a satellite DGPS
navigation system which simplifies the geolocation of the reefs.  We are not
directly involved in the ground truthing of the images, but have assisted
the NOAA group in the analysis of the images.  If you want to contact me
directly I can provide more information and samples of our most recent data
collections.  There are some examples of last year's work located on our web

Subject: Corals species from Hyperspectral data?

Bula (Hello) everyone!

I just would like to pop several questions here, and that is:

Has anyone ever done any work on the identification of coral species from
hyperspectral data? Could you please provide me with information on such
project(s) and books, or web links! 

Thanks in advance.
